What Is The Best Way Of Gaining Control With A GMB Page That Is Being Managed By An Ex-Partner With Embezzlement Issues?

By April

 

In episode 256 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one viewer asked about the best way of gaining control with a GMB page that is being managed by an ex-partner with embezzlement issues.

The exact question was:

Its been a while. Have been swamped appliyng the knowledge from your incredible, money produsing courses! Got time for Quick advice? Got a new client whose GMB is controlled by an ex-partner with whom they parted ways (embezzlement charges)… What, in your opinion, would be the best way to get control over their GMB? Contacting their ex-partner is not an option. It does not have much value at this time. Just 3-4 positive reviews, with one negative that ex-partner left. Is there a way to just cancel it and start fresh? Any negative effect from that? They have moved into a different unit (same building) and kept same number. Thank you in advance! //Jenia

Hey guys, a real estate client asked me about what we can do to make individual home listings appear higher in the SERPs for our website.
